NORDICCS is a virtual CCS networking platform aiming at increasing the deployment and commercialization of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the Nordic region.
The project involves some of the major CCS stakeholders in the five Nordic countries. Both industry, academia and research organizations are represented. The NORDICCS project was launched autumn 2011 and has a planned operation of five years. The overall aim is to develop a Nordic CCS roadmap, which will define a vision for industrial CCS implementation in the Nordic countries. It will outline the technologies most attractive for CO2 capture, transport and storage in addition to a timeline for their implementation.
The main objective of NORDICCS is to boost the deployment of CCS with the purpose to:
Provide Nordic industry-driven leadership within CCS innovation and realization
Demonstrate how CCS can contribute to the Nordic portfolio of climate change mitigation options
Enable the Nordic countries to join forces to become pioneers in large-scale implementation of CCS
Multi-contextual focus to utilize Nordic differences for broad stakeholder and global relevance
Strengthen the competitive power of the region by combining complementary capacities of the Nordic countries
Project is split on six work packages, where Tel-Tek is WP leader for WP3, and contributes in WP 1,4 and 5 as well.
The end goal of the project is to assess the feasibility of the industrial CCS cases based on the final technical and economical evaluation.
